Event Details

Pacita Abad – Restrospective

Walker Art Center, 725 Vineland Pl, Minneapolis, USA

15 April – 3 September 2023

The exuberant and wide-ranging works of Pacita Abad (US, b. Philippines, 1946 – 2004) are the subject of the first-ever retrospective spanning the artist’s 32-year career. Abad is best known for her ‘trapuntos’, a form of quilted painting made by stitching and stuffing her canvases as opposed to stretching them over a wood frame. During her lifetime, the prolific artist made a vast number of artworks that traverse a diversity of subjects, from colorful masks to intricately constructed underwater scenes to abstract compositions.

The exhibition includes more than 100 works—most of which have never been on public view in the United States—showcasing her experiments in different mediums, including textiles, works on paper, costumes, and ceramics. Organized by the Walker in collaboration with Abad’s estate, the presentation celebrates the multifaceted work of an artist whose vibrant visual, material, and conceptual concerns are as urgent today as they were three decades ago.
